Emachines Mechanical Keyboard Limitations?

Hello! A few weeks ago, I picked up an Emachines ps/2 mechanical keyboard from a thriftstore. I had no idea if it was going to work or not, but it was only $2. I had previously watched the Techquickie Ps/2 video on some advantages which pushed me to try it out. Plus it matched my sleeper Emachines monitor. So what I've discovered with this keyboard is that it's called an Emachines Model Number KB-9908, it has hot keys for internet mail, and search which works flawlessly with the windows apps. I can pull up the mail program, google chrome, and search bar at the bottom of windows taskbar or if i'm on a chrome tab, it will bring me to the chrome search bar. In gaming, that's where I discovered a small issue. The response time is great, but for some reason, the keyboard won't register shift+(any key) and specifically D-key for some reason. It gets annoying if I have to run in a game that requires me to press shift-W-D and I can't hold D at the same time as W, or any other key for that matter. When I try typing in a searchbar or so and try typing something holding shift-(any key)-and D, I get a beeping noise from my computer like it can't register the input. I hope this makes sense. Could this be a software issue? Or is this where my ps/2 mechanical keyboard cons and limitations come in? Other than this little problem, the keyboard's been great! Thanks

Thanks for the insight. I guess that's where this keyboards limits are and I need a better one. I see you have an hp 8300 in your tags. How is that like?
